I just looked at an app called SuperStatus Bar. You can change the font type and color, but not size. That is zero help. There's also a Premium version of it but I didn't bother buying. There was nothing explicit about increasing font size of the time or the size of the icons.
Edit: However, I have seen at least one (ugly) theme with a different font size. Maybe it was just a different font which happened to appear bigger. Here.
Thanks, Josh. I checked out SuperStatus Bar and found that it caused more grief than it solved. I bought the the Premium version and used it for the allotted 15 minutes I had to buy-and-try before returning it for a refund, and also found it to be unsatisfactory. It looks like we're stuck with the native status bar until someone at Google decides to listen to suggestions. Thanks again!
